Glad to bring back good memories, Seb. Just look at the joy on my son's face holding the MP-40 and you'll know new memories were created!

Thanks Bill for sharing the images. Some very cool stuff there. Was the StuG cordoned off? Would have been nice to see some more images of the drivers area, etc. Wonder if anybody will use the UE as an example of heavy chipping?

Thanks, Frank. The restoration pit is closed to visitors, so this was the best I could do.

Stug? you mean this one? This was the state it was in when I visite last year. The guy who gave the tour said it was a rare F variant. I was more interested in the other stuff, so I only have 3 pics:

Thanks, Matt. Yes, it's the same Stug III F. I guess progress is slow when you want to make them run again. I believe the motor is somewhere in that chaos pictured, but they would not let us over a yellow line that runs along the shop edge.
